My Summer Makeup Bag.

Hello lovelies, I know were practically in Fall now but I'm going on my jollies on Friday so still in Summer mode, don't get me wrong I can't wait to get into my wooly jumpers and sip pumpkin spiced lattes but I would feel weird writing about Autumn then all Summer holiday stuff when I'm back so my lovely friend Dena kindly offered to do me a summer guest post and there will be some summery types of posts for an extra couple of weeks, hope you don't mind then I'll be in full fall mode.

Firstly, I would like to thank Paige, for been so lovely &; letting me post this on her blog. I've never done a guest post before! So, let's begin... My name is Dena Jayne, I'm twenty two & I am obsessed with makeup, like it's quite crazy how much to be honest, I'm borderline a makeup hoarder. I just love it. Today I've gotten for you a post about the makeup I've had in my makeup bag all over the summer &; I've loved the looks I've been able to create!


For foundation the one I've used over and over is the Bourjois City Radiance.  It gives off light to medium coverage, which is amazing for Summer who wants to feel like their face is covered in makeup when we do actually get some heat? Not me. So this is perfect for everyday use. It also contains SPF, which may not be good if your taking photo's with a flash but it's good for your skin.

I think everybody and their cats love the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and it is one that I keep using on the daily. Not only is it ridiculously cheap, it's also ridiculously amazing!! I have this in two shades, '1 Fair' & '2 Cool Medium' I use 'Fair' as a highlight, it's amazing for those under eyes and 'Cool Medium' for any blemishes or spot's I may have. Perfect for both.

I've actually used something different from my usual "holy grail" powder which is Rimmel Stay Matte, I've actually been picking up the Soap & Glory 'One Heck of a Blot' powder instead. It's honestly amazing, keeps me matte all day and makes my makeup last even longer.


As it's the Summer and I've been working all Summer in an office without even a weekend break, I've had to fake that bronzed glow... My bronzer of choice has had to be my Nars Laguna, as you can see I've well and truly loved it, I've definitely hit pan. It gives me such a golden, natural glow which I love.

If I'm going to wear makeup, I have to go all out. I alway's wear blusher, I love it. My favourite for Summer is always a shimmery one, this year, again it's Benefit's Rockateur. How beautiful?! It is actually one of my favourite blushers ever.

I honestly love highlighters. The more I glow, the better. During the past few months, my glow of choice has been MAC Soft & Gentle. Surprise surprise it's not 'Mary-Lou' I just love how natural and it has a little bit of bronze to it too, which is perfect for the Summer months.

Eyes & Brows:

Brow's have always got to be Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade, it's perfect. Keeps my brows in place and makes them look incredible, if I do say so myself.

My go-to palette at the moment has been my Naked 3 palette, something I've been dying to fall in love with since I got it for Christmas. Pink shades aren't usually my thing but it's been something I've chosen over and over again over the the Summer. It's a perfect palette for everyday looks.

I fell in love with this mascara on the 25th December 2015 and I think I've worn it every day since! I am literally obsessed, my lashes have never looked so good! The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is honestly a gift from the makeup God's. I cannot praise it enough. I need to stock up before I run out.


My lip combination is something I've worn over and over again. It honestly is my favourite lip combo. I love a nude lip. I hate drawing attention to my mouth as I hate my teeth. MAC Honeylove is something I reach for time and time again, it is my most used MAC lipstick by far. On top I've been adding the NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée and honestly, these two together are a match made in makeup heaven (see my review of them both here).

Lot's of Love
